Hello, 2016. Hello to sun-ray, warm embrace of nature’s beauty… Stillness, simplicity and being at peace. ~jh
With society on the edge of a fury, noise, anger, and making me have an increase of wanting more of nature. I spent time with the stars, taking their portraits along with the Moon, Venus, Mars and the big guy, Jupiter. The simplicity of the night skies called to me this past year. The quietude of wonder in the stillness of the great vast horizons, known as the galaxy whispered to me many nights this past year. We got news from Pluto this year with love in a heart shape on the surface. What a guy! The energies of Pluto push us more toward ourselves, facing our truths.
The Dance. Nature’s music and moves Grace to us with the perfect plan for living… Filled with motions and colors…. Balanced and filled with love, friendship and vision. Embrace the beauty of nature and allow yourself to live in its splendor. ~jenniferhillman
I know I let go of a few stories and situations not really working in my favor. And I survived and I know that I trust more after this past year. Trust myself with the uncertainty and unknown in my life as I trust my soul does know the right way. I am okay with myself now, have losing a few chips on my shoulders and finally being okay with the hard lessons of the last 15 years. I choose to take this path and what an amazingly bizarre path it has been.
I recently wrote up one of those stories for Eric Frances’ PlanetWaves.com Vision Quest yearly reading. My story is about this dream/ vision I had when I was 13 and it all happened. All the lessons, people and places in that dream I lived, including finding my invisible friend as a child is a real person. And he is living his dreams that we spoke about listening to music as we sat on my bed. It is an incredible moment to realize just how much you have lived your dreams and didn’t realize it until you take that moment with Silence, with your heart and soul and Listen to their whispers.
Those whispers I have said to the universe have made me take steps towards the unknown yet knowing it will be a better space for me. I have made decisions and in this year of completion coming up… it is all about completing unfinished “things” like projects I spoke to many people about… though some I have no interest in now. I will weed out more and clear the decks with the ones with passion still in the heart of them.
Passion is the goal of 2016 for me. To live more completely with passion And share the love of life I have in a multitude of forms and ways that I can.
That is my true self speaking and knowing I have a good kind heart to assist people with their plan for this year. I do have a passion for coaching and supporting others’ dreams and seeing them thrive.
At the end of the childhood dream, which I haven’t completed yet, I sat in a rocking chair with a book in my lap, surrounded by the brightest light and filling totally loved, supported and in the right place. That simplicity of the stars was with me and I had made it to that heart space reality.
In this year of completion, knowing life is not completed, but experienced and perception, I hope to spend more time with the stars to learn more of their secrets on simplicity with shining bright as a guide.
Steering aim to be more like the stars seems like a beautiful goal to me.
Happy New Year! May this year, 2016 clear your mind so your heart has more of your attention while you listen to your soul’s whispers.
Shifting through the sieve of being shaking out the debris of living feeling the stuckiness of some occurrences
knowing WRITE to correct the wrong through the forgiveness reliefs
the pain , confusion and misunderstandings filter through the mirrors of deceptions the illusions of what real and what is pretend reaching within while looking out the creation of wonders, of beauty and grace collections of experiences from bizarre to miraculous
smiling with disbelief at the imagination gone wild finding the truth of the game we each must go through following a path
leading us back to center maze within the maze
of dreams within the dream continuing to wonder the line between sanity and insane blurriness of the edge with the grandeur of living riding through the happenings and occurrences at times, feeling the thrill and the depths of depression
in the heart of it all the pulse of love in all its dimensions expanding us out mingling with emotions and feelings
we choose to express those precious realizations
of the miracle of being here
and the oneness we are
Love gets us through
Even in death
Love remains with us We all know this is true.
With this awakening, the shifting and pain releasing the unwanted

New light upon the dawn as the heart opens to the grand new adventure.
Being born a week before Christmas has its mixed reviews as any of the many friends who share my birthday can tell you. Lots of celebrations, yet is it for me or the other great events at the end of the year. I decided many a moon ago to celebrate everyday as my birthday and not really focus on just one day. Every day I wake up, I am starting again and again, I celebrate having that new day.
On this day, I tend to bake. I love to bake sweet things and this is my way of celebrating by baking and giving the sweet things away… in gratitude to the people who are passing through or have passed through my journey. I think about the sweet things in life as I mix the dough of Chocolate chip cookies, Oatmeal Cranberry Bars and one of my favorite, Mexican Wedding Cakes which are also known as Russian Tea Cakes. Yum.
I spend time reflecting and writing while the cookies bake. Looking through the memories, goals achieved or not; knowing I just need to have fun. I have gone through a lot in the last few years. Lots of loss or was it really? Overall, I regain my sanity this last year through reconnecting with myself and my loves in life, my passions.
A decade ago, I was told in a dream to remember my childhood dreams of what I wanted to do. I am amazed on how many of those dreams have come true and experienced them. Some I continue with on a weekly part of my life; my radio show. I wanted to be on the radio. I wanted to support my friends and their creativity. I am doing that with great joy.
So are you living out your childhood dreams? If not, do what you can to do that. Please the inner child who loves you more than anyone else and who needs you more than anyone else. Magic lives with the child. They have an amazing imagination and sense to create magic out of nothing. That is what birthdays (and every day) are about…
Celebrating our creative child and let it out to play. Enjoy your weekend and the wonderful sweet things in life. ~jh
